Communication and Language

Children's learning and competence in communicating, speaking and listening, being read to and beginning to read and write must be supported and extended. They must also be provided with opportunity and encouragement to use their skills in a range of situations.

This exclusive supplement is available free when you register for Practical Pre-School incorporating Child Care magazine. It contains a range of activities and resources which tie in with the Communication and Language requirements of the revised EYFS and allows you to easily match your planning to the EYFS points that you need to cover.

As well as providing practitioners with resources and activities which will lay the foundations for later reading skills, the supplement will show you how children can have fun with books and stories by creating their own journals and diaries and becoming part of a story themselves. In addition, it will help you revolutionize the use of outside areas with inspirational ideas for taking communication and language beyond your setting. There is also a feature on how to use action songs to help you develop children’s communication and language.

Among other things, this Communication and Language supplement will provide you with activities and resources which will help children:

  • Explore and experiment with sounds and words 
  • Use vocabulary and forms of speech that are influenced by their experience of books
  • Listen with enjoyment and respond to stories, songs and other music, rhymes and poems and make up their own stories, songs, rhymes and poems
  • Use language to imagine and recreate roles and experience
  • Use simple grammatical structures
  • Interact with others and negotiate plans and activities, taking turns in conversation
  • Respond to what they have heard with relevant comments, questions or actions

Practical Pre-School incorporating Child Care magazine is essential reading for anyone working with children in the Early Years Foundation Stage, combining both a magazine and a practical activities resource in one!
